When did Danish company came to India?

Christian IV, the king of Denmark, established the Danish East India Company on 17 March 1616 CE through a charter. Settlements were established at Tranqueber or Tamil Nadu in 1620 CE and Serampore in Bengal in 1676 CE. The Danish East India Company was headquartered at Serampore. The Danish East India Company established their first factory at Tranquebar in Tamilnadu in 1620 and Serampur in Bengal in 1676. They were not successful in establishing themselves strongly and therefore in the 19th century sold all their settlements to the British and went back to their country. The East India Company was an English company formed for the exploitation of trade with East and Southeast Asia and India. Incorporated by royal charter on December 31, 1600, it was started as a monopolistic trading body so that England could participate in the East Indian spice trade. The last European peoples to arrive in India were the French under the auspices of the French East India Company. The French East India Company was formed in 1664 AD during the reign of King Louis XIV to trade with India. The East India Company, which once owned India, in one of the great ironies of history, is now owned by an Indian entrepreneur named Sanjiv Mehta. The company was founded in 1600 to import spices, tea and exotic items to Europe from India. For years the company remained dormant, stuck in memories and history books.

The Danish originated in Vienna, and was brought to Denmark in the mid-1800s due to a strike amongst bakery workers that pushed Danish bakery owners to hire from abroad. Among the bakers that were hired, some were Austrian, and brought their own recipes to Denmark, hence the ‘Danish’ being born.
